Multi-section semiconductor optical amplifiers (SOA) have been shown to have superior noise and linearity performance compared with single section SOAs. We show how to create a simplified numerical model for multi-section SOAs that is suitable for optical communication system simulations and use that model to investigate the amplification performance of 56… CONTINUE READING
